FALLING DOWN - a Celluloid Sorceress 35mm presentation • 25th Anniversary

The Celluloid Sorceress’ retrospective of Joel Schumacher comes to The Prince Charles Cinema with the dark fable commonly hailed as the director’s greatest masterpiece.


Michael Douglas is D-FENS, a white collar, white male suburban defense worker trapped in gridlock on his way to work on the Los Angeles freeway.  Brought to breaking point by the accumulation of daily frustrations and antagonisms he snaps, abandoning his car and embarking on a mosaic journey “home”.  Encountering the full diversity of the ever expanding City of Angels, D-FENS also acquires an arsenal of weaponry as retiring police detective Robert Duvall follows the trail he leaves behind.


The Los Angeles riots of 1992 lasted nearly a week.  Warner Bros., like everyone else, pulled their productions filming in the city back within the confines of the studio lot.  FALLING DOWN finished its shoot at Burbank and was released in 1993 to very mixed reviews, controversy and protests.  To some it was a reactionary response to events from a liberal Hollywood set.  Others understood it as a gripping dark comedy meditating on socio-economic tensions and the balance of American privilege.


For those on the West Coast the film was a little too close to home and its prescience resonates in today’s political climate.  Schumacher, the writer of Sparkle, Car Wash, The Wiz and D.C. Cab challenges a mainstream audience to examine its unconscious biases through a bravura performance by Michael Douglas. With superb cinematography and an exciting sound design, FALLING DOWN is funny, thrilling, provocative and stands as one of the finest “Lost in L.A.” movies of all time.


Introduced by Rebecca Nicole Williams at 8:55pm with a selection of vintage 35mm trailers before the feature.
